Our Christmas this year was different, but fun. We had church in the morning and then went to someone's house for lunch. They had a pool table so we had fun playing with it. Here are some pictures from our day. Some of them my sister took and others are pix I took via Instagram.
Ruth loved pool! (it is her 11th birthday today, BTW.)
|Can't beat coffee and snow-man doughnuts from Krispie-Kreme!|
My mom made this neat cake! She make a sheet of chocolate cake and put whipped cream on it and rolled it up to make it look like a log. Then she frosted it and made these cute little mushrooms out of meringue. Yum!
One of our Starbucks ornaments. We have a TON.
We love old TV shows like Bonanza! This picture of Ruth is so funny--I'm not quite sure what she was doing...
"Dear Maria Beasley,
I am the great Santa Claus. As you probably know, I give out epic presents to good little boys and girls who don’t sneak looks at what’s under the wrapping before the gift is given to them. And as you probably know as well, I give coal to bad little boys and girls who are so impatient that they sneak looks at what’s under the wrapping before the gift is given to them. I know what you did to your poor brother, but, since you apologized, I have decided to let you keep The Extended Cut Of “The Patriot” on Blu-ray because I am nice. However, because of what you did, I am balancing out your gift with a hearty supply of coal. Also, as punishment, you must acquire for your perfectly nice brother exactly four pictures of [a character from a film MJ likes] so that he can create a fake slipcover for the soundtrack disc he owns.
Remember, I know whether you’ve been naughty or nice, so, if you don’t do that, you will wake up one morning and realize that The Extended Cut Of “The Patriot” on Blu-ray has disappeared from your bookshelf. I’m always watching you !
With no respect whatsoever,
Jo got a "fire-mans" suit! :)
One of the things my Dad gave Mom was a copy of each of his books. She was so excited to receive them!
I think this box was from mom and dad and it had an itunes gift card in it! Yay!!!! They know me well! ;)
This is Micaiah's "My sister just gave me an mp3 player" face! Lol!
So, that was our Christmas! It was quiet and fun. We had an awesome time together at Church remembering the real reason for Christmas, fellow-shipping at our friends house and at home being together. How was your Christmas celebration?
